Our One Great Act of Fidelity: Waiting for Christ in the Eucharist by Father Ronald Rolheiser: This is a wonderful read. Father Rolheiser refers to the Eucharist as the hug of God. He also challenges us to be that same hug for those around us, especial in social justice settings. You can purchase this book at the De Sales Catholic Bookstore here in Springfield.

Pope Francis’ encyclical, Light of Faith: Lumen Fidei, is a wonderful commentary on faith. When we have faith, it influences how we see. And this new sight determines what we do and how we live. Pope Francis reflects on lived faith and its effect on social issues and relationships. Faith is bigger than simply believing in God. It is the energy of every aspect of life. This is a must-read for everyone. It can be read on www.vatican.va or purchased at the De Sales Bookstore here in Springfield.
